    Default What family day week end is all about in our family.

    Beautiful weather today, a bunch of perch and a few OOS small mouth. Lunch on the ice and all. Our day summed up in one picture.

    Daughter and her family came up Friday for a perch fry. Slaved over a 12" pan for 1/2 hr. The kids had never had fish like that, even found a good size walleye fillet for my wife as her birthday is Feb 20.
    Saturday had our son and his wife join us all for turkey supper. Our last son and his family were five hours late for the meal so they ate at 10 pm....( par for the course with them)

    I remember when FD first became law, there were a lot of folks on this site who were not down with it. ' What is the gov. doing we don't need another holiday'....... What do they say now? Still a bad idea?

    The only problem I have is that it is not a statutory holiday. Just as many people I know have to work as get it off.

    Its a stat where I work. Some employers allow the workforce to take it around Christmas to fill a hole between Christmas and New Years.

    Like any holiday and hourly workers, there are some who want the time on their pay stubs and others who want the day off. In a past life long ago I was a union rep for the Oshawa area, first thing I learned while bargaining new contracts, you can't please them all......

    I do believe it is a statutory 'Public Holiday" by law in Ontario.

    Family Day was made a public holiday under the provincial Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA), and a holiday under the provincial Retail Business Holidays Act (RBHA). Provincial law does not apply to employees of federally-regulated businesses like banks, telecommunications companies, railways and airlines nor to federal civil servants.
    Family Day is a public holiday under the Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA). If an employee thinks the employer is not complying with the ESA, he or she can call the Ministry of Labour’s Employment Standards Information Centre at 416-326-7160 or toll free at 1-800-531-5551 for more information about the ESA and how to file a complaint.

    My wife and daughter both work in the health care...when these stat days come up they jump at the chance to work them for pay x 1.5 ..ie work 12 get paid for 18. They get enough days off between shift rotations that these specific holidays mean nothing, so a 'stat' is just another day...they will be off for a 3 day stretch later in the pay period. My wife got almost a full time pay period just working Dec 24th, 25th and 26th this past Christmas.

    But when you have kids and there are days when they are home from school, it's nice when employers are forced to make you stay home.
